I have a 2022 Lucid Grand Touring which is rated for 470mile (21" wheels), but at best, I get 350 miles or ~3.1miles/kWh. I am thinking of trading this in for a 580 EQS as I have heard its rated mileage is 375 miles and it "regularly" gets that mileage. What has been your experience? Please let me know what miles/kWh, Wh/miles, km/kWh, or range per charge you are getting. This will help me immensely in making this decision. The 580 has many great features that are better than the Lucid, but just want to factor any range difference in the decision.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

I can tell you that I sold a 9 month old 2022 Tesla Model S when the 2023 EQS580 Sedan I ordered came in. To get maximum range you need to drive in ECO mode which I have never done for more than a few minutes. I prefer Comfort Mode and some prefer Sport Mode.

This said, here are my experiences. I have had the EQS almost two months. The average wh/mile in the Tesla was around 310. In order to get the rated range it had to be around 260. I never could achieve that.

In comfort mode, the EQS averages around 380 w/mi. But I am very happy with the range. In ECO mode it probably does much better. To achieve the range it would have to be well under 300.

The EQS is a total luxury car. I bought it with the intention of keeping whichever I preferred between it and the Tesla. I sold the Tesla.

Have had our 2023 EQS580 less than a week and 260 miles, currently achieving 3.3mpk/Wh without really trying. Started out in Comfort mode but switched to ECO mode and heavy recuperation. Also have a 2020 i3 REX, the one-pedal driving on it is similar to the EQS using HR but the EQS is a bit more aggressive. Overall we LOVE our EQS, glad we went with the 580 and not 450. Our 2023 also has 20” wheels. We traded in our 2019 e-tron Prestige for the EQS. The Audi was a solid car, vault like build, comfortable and nicely appointed but range was always an issue. It was no EQS! The MBUX driver assistance systems are so much better than Audi”s offering. We also have a 2021 E63S station wagon with MBUX on it so already knew it was big step up from the Audi systems. Cheers

I am in the Southwest, Southern New Mexico/West Texas and on my 2022 EQS 580, I have 7K miles clocked since 11-11-22....the car is amazing, even with MercedesMe not working (long story). To your query, from my personal experience in weather above 50F I get 340 miles. Weather below 40F distance is reduced to 230 miles, give or take. Weather and driving tendencies play a major role in the range....90% of my driving is done on eco mode and the aforementioned numbers are the results. That said, I still recommend this car if you're in the market for this level of luxury, comfort, tech and amazing drivability.

We must be pussyfooting our EVs far too much! EQS at 80% charging protocol is approx. 300 miles range, projected 380 @ 100%. 2020 i3 REX averages 170 miles electric range. SE Virginia is not Siberia with regards to the cold but it has its moments, mostly 40s/50s in winter. EQS is always garaged while i3 is mostly outside. i3 is our runabout vehicle, EQS our cruiser.
EV benefits to us are home L2 charging, helping the environment and not having to deal with nimrods at gas stations…you know the kind, sifting thru their multitude of credit cards to find one that works, disappearing into the store to pay and reappearing 10 minutes later carrying bags of chips and a Slurpee, not following the directional arrows to ensure free flowing of customers. Other benefits, not caring about getting stuck at lights or traffic jams ‘cos you’re not wasting gas And of course not inhaling carcinogens when filling up.
However, I won’t be selling our E63S station wagon anytime soon, I still need it to haul stuff back from Lowes and Home Depot (30 bags of mulch is a personal best!) and enjoy its banzai V8 now and again.
